Southwest Airlines has partnered with several Strip and downtown hotels to give visitors an incentive to extend their stays in Las Vegas.
From now until Feb. 11, visitors booking flights and hotels with Southwest Vacations can receive up to two nights free at participating hotels. Visitors booking three nights will receive one of those nights for free and visitors booking four nights will receive two of those nights for free.
The deal is good for travel booked between now and March 31, but travel needs to be booked at least five days in advance.
Flight and hotel packages start at $38 per person, per night, with a stay at the El Cortez Hotel and Casino. Other hotels on the list include the Venetian, Treasure Island, The Mirage and Planet Hollywood.
For the first weekend of March with a departure out of Los Angeles with a four-night stay, prices range from $229 per person at the El Cortez to $691 at the Four Seasons. Prices at other popular hotels include $349 at Luxor, $448 at Mandalay Bay and $517 at Caesars Palace.
